NBC’s Version of “Grandpas Over Flowers” With William Shatner and Henry Winkler to Film in Korea
American network NBC‘s new travel reality show “Better Late Than Never” is heading to Korea soon!
“Better Late Than Never” is based off the format of tvN‘s popular travel show “Grandpas Over Flowers,” which NBC bought the rights to last fall. The original show was led by renowned PD Na Young Suk, and featured four veteran actors (Lee Soon Jae, Shin Goo, Park Geun Hyung, and Baek Il Sub) traveling across Europe. They were accompanied by a younger actor, Lee Seo Jin, who acted as their driver, cook, and baggage boy.
The American version stars actors Henry Winkler and William Shatner, boxing champion George Foreman, and sports commentator Terry Bradshaw. Comedian Jeff Dye will be acting as their young porter as the group travels around Asia to check items off their personal bucket lists.
“Better Late Than Never” is heading to Korea on August 20, and will be filming in Korea for three days starting on August 22 at the Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon. They’ll then be exploring other tourist sites in the country.
Do you think the “Grandpas Over Flowers” format will be a hit in the United States?
